Subsistence & Incidentals/Meals and incidentals (include tips/fees for services such as waiters and baggage handlers: pressing and/or cleaning of clothes) are reimbursed for actual expenses incurred, up to the ceiling of $62/day (if gone for less than 24 hours, NO Meals and Incidentals will be reimbursed).
10/15/17: Maximum daily reimbursement for meals and incidentals cap will decrease to $62 for travel assignments of less than 30 days within the CONUS. Exceptions are not permitted. The proposed policy language is as follows:
o The M&IE cap for CONUS travel under 30 days shall not be treated as a per diem. M&IE reimbursement shall be limited to the actual reasonable costs incurred; subject to the daily maximum reimbursement cap.
Meals covered by conference registration fees, provided in-flight, or hosted by another individual, organization, etc. may not be claimed for reimbursement. As reminder, per our local campus procedure, receipts are not required for meal costs less than $75.
